"It was uncharacteristic for him".
The penalties continue a NASCAR trend toward suspending vehicle chiefs, who often play a more hands-on role with the auto than the crew chief during a weekend. For the most part, Kevin Harvick paced the field in the second stage, which he won, though Kasey Kahne managed a Chevrolet-high 11 laps led after several cautions.
In Sunday's rain-shortened 133-lap race, Clint Bowyer scored his second Cup victory of 2018 and led Stewart-Haas Racing Fords in the top three just ahead of second-place Kevin Harvick and third-place Kurt Busch. Bowyer, Kevin Harvick and pole victor Kurt Busch gave Stewart-Haas Racing a sweep of the top three spots.
Entering the race, Bowyer was one of only six drivers who had won at least one of the first 14 races of the season, as he won the race at Martinsville Speedway back in late March. "Certainly, as hard as we did past year to make sure we can have a shot at doing it again, and I think right now we're in decent shape to be able to do it, but things change fast, so you've got to keep working and you've got to keep your head down and just keep grinding it out each week". "We got about three-quarters of the way down pit road, I was about 70 percent sure", Bugarewicz said. "We were making it back up but then the rain came". His spin brought out one of the stage two yellows, and the past four races his finishes are 26th, 15th, 24th and 30th. They battled for a bit, and Bowyer ended up with the lead in his No. 14 auto. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 30.
"I promise the guy that's second is going to say they threw it way too early, and I'm that guy today", Hemric joked.
"To be able to compete at that level (as) a championship-caliber team, you have to be able to unload week in, week out with cars capable of getting the job done", Bowyer said. "That doesn't hold any weight, but it really was".Читайте также: Brexit: MPs says PM must honour 'assurances' over Parliament's role
NASCAR's Cup Series race Sunday started after a rain delay of about 2 1-2 hours, and pole victor Kurt Busch is the leader after 25 laps. Three Joe Gibbs Racing drivers - Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones - had to start at the back because of inspection failures related to the splitter.
With more bad weather threatening but the race past official length, Bowyer started up front, with Harvick, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch and Keselowski comprising the rest of the top five, in order.
Austin Dillon and Daniel Hemric didn't have much time to battle for the lead after the final restart. By winning at Michigan International Speedway, he became the fourth different driver to win more than one of the first 15 races of the season.
"I've been on both sides of this", said Harvick, who was denied another chance to overtake Bowyer by the weather. The two are often found at the track putting on a show for fans or doing a little racing of their own in their pint-sized cars.
Kyle Busch started on the pole for the LTi Printing 250, but it was Paul Menard who grabbed the early lead.
The caution came after Matt Kenseth's vehicle spun toward the infield. "It's very special to finish 1-2-3". Kyle Larson's streak of MI wins ended because during stage two he spun out through the wet grass on the front stretch taring up his vehicle. After Sunday's race, he said he felt he had the fastest vehicle - and blamed himself for a "stupid mistake" that led to a 28th-place finish.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
